The enigmatic DJ and producer Claptone unveils his latest single ‘The Big Easy’ – the third club-ready anthem to be released on his new label Golden Recordings on August 11th.
‘The Big Easy’ is yet another banger from the club-focused Golden Recordings, with Claptone throwing hair-raising brass samples and sprinkles of strings on a huge house beat. “This track is smiling at you and wants you to smile back” in the words of Claptone himself.
An instant crowd-pleaser, poised to dominate festivals and clubs this summer.
It follows previous Golden Recordings singles ‘Flashdance’, the collaboration with New York legend Man Parrish, and ‘Euphoria’, which has gained over two million Spotify streams. The new label launched earlier this year is releasing music to “celebrate House Music and its everlasting golden era”, again Claptone himself.
Claptone has released three artist albums – ‘Charmer’ (2015), ‘Fantast’ (2019) and ‘Closer’ (2022) – over the past 8 years, featuring singles such as: ‘No Eyes’, ‘Heartbeat’, ‘Under The Moon’, ‘Queen of Ice’ and ‘Just A Ghost’. Well known for his remix work, including his reimagining of Gregory Porter’s ‘Liquid Spirit’, his uplifting and vocal-heavy style of house has gone on to rack up millions of plays on YouTube, with his Spotify currently enjoying over four million monthly listeners. More recently he has remixed tracks by superstars Elton John, Dua Lipa, Gorillaz, Mark Ronson, Depeche Mode, Ava Max, Rufus du Sol, Pet Shop Boys, Michael Kiwanuka, Rag’n’Bone Man, New Order and more.
The Venetian mask-donning producer also launched the immersive and otherworldly ‘The Masquerade’ events in 2017, with guests including Fatboy Slim, MK, Purple Disco Machine, James Hype, Vintage Culture, Armand Van Helden, John Summit, Meduza, Faithless, Nora En Pure and Pete Tong across showcases in Australia, South America, North America, London, Paris, Amsterdam and multiple seasons at Pacha Ibiza – the latest of which has just kicked off for the summer.
Now with his own recently launched record label, Golden Recordings, Claptone is ramping up his focus. ‘The Big Easy’ is set to become another huge dancefloor weapon in the masked producer’s arsenal.
